Oasis Tourist Park received VEEP funding to upgrade their camp kitchen
$1.5 million in grants is being awarded to over 60 Territory businesses to enhance their visitor offerings through the Territory Government’s Visitor Experience Enhancement Program (VEEP).

Round 4 tourism operators received up to $50,000 in grant funding, with businesses providing a matched cash co-contribution.

VEEP provides support to local tourism operators to allow for upgrades or improvements to their visitor experiences to attract positive online reviews and recommendations.

Red Centre highlights for Round 4 include upgrades to Wintersun Caravan Park, a new commercial kitchen at Royal Flying Doctor Service Tourism Facility, a new ticketing space for Julalikari Bush Foods Experience and a new canopy at World Expeditions’ camp for those trekking the Larapinta Trail.

Locals and visitors to the Top End will see upgrades to Aquascene Fish Feeding in Doctors Gully, improvements to Top End Safari Camp’s pool, deck and bar, the establishment of a barramundi feeding pond at Point Stuart Wilderness Lodge, upgrades to lodge rooms at Bamurru Plains and an extension to Hanuman Darwin’s alfresco dining area.

The program has provided $6 million through four funding rounds, with additional private investment of $15 million, and a total of 239 businesses awarded grants for projects.
